A St. Croix man who admitted to killing 30-year-old Shamal Riviere of Sion Farm appeared in court Friday.

Anselmo Cruse, 33, was initially charged with voluntary manslaughter, according to a news release from V.I. Police Department spokesman Toby Derima, but the probable cause fact sheet filed by police charged Cruse only with the crimes of illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.
